Oak Electric Services, Inc. prides itself on being a leader in the sales, installation and service of residential and commercial wind turbines. Here are some interesting facts about the growing use of wind power on the planet:
- Wind power currently accounts for 1% of the earth’s power, but the number is continually rising as wind power gains ground as a profitable and effective energy source.
- Wind power electricity production has quadrupled over the past six years, with Denmark, Germany, the United States, and Spain, leading the pack.
- Denmark generates one fifth of its total electricity through wind power, which is the highest production rate in the world.
- In 1999, wind power only accounted for 0.1% of the United States’ total generated electricity. Over the past nine years, attitudes towards the environment have changed so that wind power is now over 1% of the country’s total electricity.
- The United States and European governments, businesses, and people are championing wind power, recognizing its affordability and beneficial effects on the environment.
- Wind power does not produce air pollution while generating electricity, making it better for the environment than fossil fuels, which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
- The U.S. Department of Energy has discovered that the abundance of wind flowing across the Great Plains has the ability to power the entire nation.
